An extraordinary beautiful place with a superb beach cafe. The walk from the visitor centre to the beach gives you a 360 view and is spectacular. Interesting to see that those beach huts sell for £ 300'000!

Amazing to see the river and the sea from the top. Wonderful Mudeford beach on a another side, make sure you go there to stroll around colourful beach huts.

With how hot this summer has been, a good swim in the sea is needed. We went for a lovely walk last Friday night and a swim! Absolutely beautiful beach! It’s always a nice trip down here for a walk or to dip your toes

It's worth coming here, either taking the 30minute walk or using the train (charges apply). Great views and spectacular sunrise or sunsets can be seen. It's a very popular place, so allow plenty of time as the car park gets very full in peak season....More

Wonderful views over the coast & Isle of Wight & not too difficult even if you make it to the end. Go down to Mudiford Spit to finish off a lovely day. You can walk or take the Train to return to the Carpark.

Myself and my partner visit here regularly. It is a very beautiful area to go and explore. With or without a dog.

Love this place, amazing veiw, a lovely cafe and dogs are allowed on the beach. Lovely paths for walking and cycling and the land train is good too, especially if you're a tourist.

Its a good path which is wide and the views either side of the path are wonderful. There is a train which is user friendly which takes you to the beach/café. Having said this, once off the train at beach/café point, it... More
